U.S. Army Veteran Robert “George” Stovall is an all-American servant of his country. Growing up in the hills of Virginia, he developed a love of the outdoors and began hunting and fishing as a young boy. George wanted to see more of the world, enticing him to serve his country. He took a tour in Korea and also had some assignments stateside. When he left the military, he pursued higher education and received a BS in Geology from the University of Montana and an MS in Geophysics from Virginia Tech.
George worked in the oil industry, starting with a major oil company and moving to Meridian Oil/Burlington Resources. In 2007, George and a handful of colleagues combined talents and formed a small company now known as Oasis Petroleum. In 2010, the Oasis team rang the opening bell on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange! In 2013, George retired from the oil industry but has not slowed down.
In 2015, George wanted to continue giving back and found an opportunity to support our nation’s heroes when he began hosting excursions on his Lockhart Mountain Ranch with Combat Marine Outdoors. To date, over 50 warriors have enjoyed the solitude and natural beauty of the Ranch. What an incredible service he is providing to our nation’s heroes!
George and his wife, Carrell live in Cypress but spend about half of their time in Llano, Texas, on their Ranch. Together, they have two children. John Robert, their son, was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army in May of 2022. Their daughter, Jane, is a senior at the University of Texas Austin.
Saving Bees and Saving Vets with people like George gives us guidance and hope for the future! Our hearts are full with George and his family and the sacrifices they make for the mission of Hives for Heroes and veterans nationwide. Thank you!
